    Anna Bonitatibus presents a special series, Lirica Italiana, exploring the arc of Italian vocal chamber music, as we delve into repertoire from the 19th and 20th centuries over the course of two evenings.

    The music of Italy’s fathers of bel canto, or ‘beautiful song’, was in worldwide demand in the 1800s. Anna is joined by close friends for a recital of musical surprises and delights, complete with Rossini, Donizetti and Verdi rarities.
